TransDec: A Data-Driven Framework for Decision-Making in Transportation Systems

Date Added: Apr 2009
Format: PDF

This paper presents an end-to-end data-driven system, dubbed TransDec (Short for Transportation Decision-Making), to enable decision-making queries in transportation systems with dynamic, real-time and historical data. With TransDec, the authors particularly address the challenges in visualization, monitoring, querying and analysis of dynamic and large-scale spatiotemporal transportation data. TransDec fuses a variety of transportation related real-world spatiotemporal datasets including massive traffic sensor data, trajectory data, transportation network data, and points-of-interest data to create an immersive and realistic virtual model of a transportation system.
